Almost one in three Donegal Drivers do not lock their car when filling up and paying for fuel.
That is one of the findings of a new report from AA Motor Insurance.
The report also finds that motorists in the northwest are some of the least vigilant when it comes to car security.
The AA is warning people not to leave items on view in the car - 12 per cent of drivers surveyed said they frequently do - however in the Northwest that figure jumps to around 19%.
Across the country, women are marginally more inclined to have clutter visible in the car - 15 per cent of women compared to 11 per cent of men said they' ll routinely have items thrown about in the interior of their vehicle.
